Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and when he was in prison he gave a interpretation of dreams. But here is the thing, it took two years after the intrepation for Joseph to be delivered.
But when all goes well with you, remember me and show me kindness; mention me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison. I was forcibly carried off from the land of the Hebrews, and even here I have done nothing to deserve being put in a dungeon.” When the chief baker saw that Joseph had given a favorable interpretation, he said to Joseph, “I too had a dream: On my head were three baskets of bread. In the top basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, but the birds were eating them out of the basket on my head.” “This is what it means,” Joseph said. “The three baskets are three days. Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head and impale your body on a pole. And the birds will eat away your flesh.” The chief cupbearer, however, did not remember Joseph; he forgot him.
Genesis 40:14-19, 23 NIV
When two full years had passed, Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile, He fell asleep again and had a second dream: Seven heads of grain, healthy and good, were growing on a single stalk. Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, “Today I am reminded of my shortcomings. Pharaoh was once angry with his servants, and he imprisoned me and the chief baker in the house of the captain of the guard. Each of us had a dream the same night, and each dream had a meaning of its own. Now a young Hebrew was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams, and he interpreted them for us, giving each man the interpretation of his dream. And things turned out exactly as he interpreted them to us: I was restored to my position, and the other man was impaled.” So Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and he was quickly brought from the dungeon. When he had shaved and changed his clothes, he came before Pharaoh. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream, and no one can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” “I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile, when out of the river there came up seven cows, fat and sleek, and they grazed among the reeds.
Genesis 41:1, 5-5, 9-18 NIV
Right now it may seem as if the wicked are prospering.. it may seem like God has left . You may ask God why do they have a job and I dont ? I’ve been applying over and over again why me? Why God do they have the apartment and I dont ? I work I wake up early and work and they dont even serve you.. why me ?
And it seems like the more you suffer the more dreams you have , but the more they prosper. But here is the thing. If you keep going in two years you will look back and you will be the head and not the Tail. Joseph was not brought out to work at McDonalds or Burger King. NO! JOSEPH was brought out to be put in authority. So you have to keep going !
“I cannot do it,” Joseph replied to Pharaoh, “but God will give Pharaoh the answer he desires.” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile, Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. “It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, “And now let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man and put him in charge of the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh appoint commissioners over the land to take a fifth of the harvest of Egypt during the seven years of abundance. So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God ?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.”
Genesis 41:16-17, 25, 28-29, 33-34, 38-40 NIV
Here Is Another Mystery
Sometimes God will allow the wicked to rule to prepare you for leadership. Think about Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel ruled under him. Alot of time we want the Joseph anointing but we dont want to be lied on, we want the Daniel anointing but we dont want to go the lions den, you want to be Esther but you dont want to accept there was Vashti before you… Shall you not accept the good and the bad ? You want to be Ruth but dont want to accept that somethings have to die before you marry Boaz..
The Prophetic Word is : Two Years
Just keep going. Choose the narrow way it leads to life!
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 NIV
